Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that this week the new Mamavation Moms are going to be announced today. I am so excited for each and everyone of them as they embark on this humungous challenge. So good luck to each & everyone of you. I plan on cheering on these tough girls by joining them in their boot camp workouts.
Last week I made some resolutions to not just get myself & family healthier, but to make my life better. click here to see those resolutions I've already started some of these! The easiest one for me so far is setting aside the money saved on grocery bills. Last week with coupons I was able to put $10 into a savings account. My hubby thinks I'm silly for doing this, but I think by the end of a few months he'll be on board & see the benefits. I did try to buy more organic options at the store, but I have a question for all of you who follow a strict organic diet. How on Earth can you afford it? I was blown away by how expensive it is to shop in this section. So I did have to make the executive decision & not buy the organic produce. Instead I bought organic butter, yogurt, and juice as well as some organic veggie chips for my kids "junk" food. As soon as I got home from the store, I cleared out all the left over chips, candy & other holiday related merchandise & tossed it into the garbage. I even had the kids helping & they now know that those items, even thou they taste yummy, they can make us sick & not feel good if we eat them. It was nice that all week long when they asked for something to eat there was no worries attached to them opening the cabinets or the fridge. I'm not going to sit here & tell you I'm 100% perfect, but I'm on the right path & that's what matters the most.
Also, this week I am starting the Couch to 5k Program I am really stoked that in 8 short weeks I should ideally be able to run an entire 5k! I am really trying to stick to this goal, so I hope all you ladies help keep me on task!
Tonight is a big night for me as well. As most of you know my family & I joined a local Martial Arts class. Tonight I am testing in hopes to achieve my next belt :) If I pass next week I will be presented with my prize of a new golden belt. (At least I think its golden)
This week I lost no weight, but I didn't gain weight either!
